VITEC is a key player in the intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and situational awareness space. Our products and solutions tackle all major video ingest, streaming, dissemination and archiving needs inside military and government facilities and in the field. Our HEVC capabilities are revolutionising the way full motion video (FMV) is utilised in military networks by allowing higher quality video to flow over existing constrained pipes, as well as enabling users to deliver larger number of video sources through the available bandwidth compared with legacy H.264-based solutions.
VITEC's video streaming products feature 100% hardware processing, ultra-low streaming latency and a wide range of appliance form factors to fit any application, from portable 1080p rugged encoders up to multichannel blade platforms for large stationary video hubs.
VITEC's EZ TV is a comprehensive solution for managing any live mission or on-demand video from any type of MPEG encoder. EZ TV enables military units to effectively and securely disseminate live feeds to local and remote users, and create different access levels to content based on clearance and/or geographical location. EZ TV also provides increased accessibility with IPTV playback on TVs, PCs, laptops and mobile devices.
Organisations can leverage existing IP network infrastructure to distribute video to LAN and WAN users. EZ TV's browser-based IPTV player can be rapidly deployed throughout the network. The solution provides security and is approved to use by all military branches with a seat-free model eliminating the costs associated with solutions that charge per user. Integration with IT security systems and existing domain policies enable system admins to easily regulate access to video content dynamically, which eliminates the need to use complex access lists, firewall and network routing settings. Conformance with DISA and JITC guidelines allows for rapid deployment at the HQ and in the field.
FITIS (Fully Integrated Tactical IPTV System) is an integrated FMV ISR solution for capturing, processing, archiving, indexing, managing and disseminating tactical ISR video and metadata. It is designed for rapid deployments and efficient distribution of IP video across any LAN or WAN. It enables real-time playback of tactical and situational awareness imagery, continuous recording and indexing of metadata, retrieval of vital video assets and analysts notes. It supports propagation of scenario-specific video imagery in a variety of formats and under any bandwidth constraints, from high-definition ISR footage for analysts to ultra-compressed streams for transmission to tactical units at the edge.
VITEC's FMV Solutions help manage the influx of video sources and formats, extend the reach of video to the edge and enhance situational awareness and decision making processes at all levels. VITEC's Military Grade IPTV Transcoder, the MGW Prism, is a powerful solution for intercepting real-time IPTV streams and re-encoding /re-packaging as highly compressed HEVC streams that improve bandwidth utilization and enable reaching disadvantaged users with higher quality video than ever before. The MGW Prism creates an optimized, highly-compressed output stream, while in conjunction the KLV metadata pass-through guarantees retention of the critical KLV/STANAG metadata. VITEC's MGW Prism can also transcode FMV Streams to HLS, HDS, RTSP and SST streaming formats that can be delivered to mobile devices and includes a built-in adaptive-bitrate combiner for creation of multiple video profiles of the same content.
VITEC's portable, rugged, hardware-based encoders provide end-to-end HEVC workflows for military SA and ISR in the field. VITEC's featured encoder, MGW Ace, is the world's first H.265 and H.264 hardware encoder in a professional-grade, low footprint, compact streaming appliance. With real-time 100% hardware HEVC compression, MGW Ace enables users to stream broadcast quality 1080p video with up to 50% bandwidth savings compared to today's H.264 standards.
VITEC's smallest encoder, the MGW Pico is the size of a deck of cards and has been deployed with individual soldiers to ingest and stream ISR data. The small, yet rugged, MGW Pico TOUGH packs all the needed capabilities for any ISR sensor or situational awareness video in an ultra-small airborne and IP68 certified enclosure, including KLV/STANAG metadata support from serial, IP and SDI VANC.
VITEC features a broad range of point-to-point streaming and FMV solutions engineered for mission-critical and tactical military and defense operations. VITEC's latest encoding solutions and IPTV management system are designed to allow military personnel to easily disseminate live feeds and recorded video assets in various bit-rates optimized for the specific network link available. VITEC's field-proven technologies and experience supporting demanding applications enables users to benefit from cutting-edge solutions for IPTV, video compression and networking.
